Brisbane City Council turns 90
The City of Brisbane Act 1924 was assented to on 30 October 1924. The new Act abolished the 19 local authorities and created only one. In 1940 the ‘face’ of the Brisbane City Council was Miss Jean Meiklejohn, entered into the Miss AIF pageant by the Council to raise money for the Australian Comforts Fund.
